MDE11501 - Post-medieval adit or water source in Mines Wood (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
At SS 7364 3298 is a suboval hollow in the hillslope some 8 metres across. It is either a natural spring source or an adit. Water issues from the hollow and on its lower, western, side is a 2.5 metre length of revetted bank which, although now breached, acted as a dam. It is possible that if the feature was a natural spring it has been exploited to supply the leat which is immediately below it (MDE11497).
